A High-Performance Outdoor Access Point

The Cisco Aironet 1552WU Outdoor Access Point is designed for hazardous environments like mining pits, oil and gas refineries, and manufacturing facilities, as well as for process control applications. The 1552WU combines a ruggedized outdoor 802.11n access point with an integrated WirelessHART gateway for wireless sensor networks.

Features and Capabilities

This access point offers mission-critical connectivity and wireless mobility for industrial sensing and monitoring equipment, such as gauges for water treatment plants, sensors for chemical plants, and vibration monitoring solutions for oil rigs.

It improves overall plant reliability, safety, and profitability through a flexible, highly secure, and scalable mesh network. It offers high-performance wireless coverage for both Wi-Fi clients and WirelessHART field instruments across large facilities.

In addition, the 1552WU lowers operating expenses and reduces deployment times by:

  • Integrating the Emerson Smart Wireless GatewayContent opens in new window(PDF - 202 KB) for WirelessHART sensor networks
  • Eliminating extra power and network connections, which can be expensive to deploy and maintain in hazardous locations
  • Providing high-bandwidth video surveillance over Wi-Fi without the need to install cables over long distances

Specifications at a Glance

  • Supports dual Wi-Fi radio system compliant with IEEE 802.11a/n (5 GHz) and 802.11b/g/n (2.4 GHz) standards
  • Integrates WirelessHART-compatible gateway for wireless sensor networks
  • Operates in hazardous environments (certified Class 1 Division2/Zone2 enclosure)
  • Provides integrated spectrum intelligence for a self-configuring, self-healing network through Cisco CleanAir Technology
  • Improves reliability and coverage for traditional Wi-Fi clients with Cisco ClientLink
